The butterflies are out and about. I tried to tell this Spicebush Swallowtail that the monkshood was poisonous, but he wouldn't listen. He was trying to dodge the big storms we got yesterday. I saw a lot of folks that looked like they did not read High On LeConte. A lot of soaking wet and cold hikers were huddled around the heater during the storm. Today is starting out to be a repeat of yesterday. If you are hiking up today, do yourself a favor and splurge on that two dollar poncho. It will make for a much happier experience.
Welcome to the LeConte Lodge blog. We hope you enjoy the information we provide to make your trip to the lodge the best it can be.
